Won't fix the problem. Good to use AFTER the current malware is gone.

Use SystemRescueCd to backup your files, then format the hard drive and reinstall windows

Oh, don't beat yourself up over it... these things are so sophisticated nowadays that they can even fool IT professionals sometimes.

Question: Are you sure the Startup Repair screen is real? It may be a fake as well. Have you tried to simply ignore it, drag it out of the way, and run the antispyware programs in regular mode (not safe mode with networking)?

Ah okay. I think it's real. I've never seen it prior to this incident and so I don't have a prior experience to compare it to. I think it's real.

There don't seem to be any other options if I move the box. I tried to start normally and also safe mode (the other one) and they both lead me to startup repair.

Is there something else that can be done?

See this about C:\CL.dll (Boot critical file C:CL.dll is corrupt)

The only thing that springs to mind is Hiren's Boot CD. You could launch malwarebytes and anti-rootkit utilities from mini xp and clean it up; or if that fails you could copy your data to a thumbdrive and re-install 7.

Download Hiren

But perhaps someone else has an easier way...?
